President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in this morning at about 10:45am at Eagle Square, Abuja but he didn’t give any inaugural speech.
The reason seems to be due to the fact that the government, through the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had promised that the swearing-in ceremony would be a low-key event at least until the new democracy day.
The date for democracy day celebration had been changed last year by the president to June 12. Other world leaders will be expected to grace the major occasion next month.
Some political commentators have, however, said that the President may have just missed a valuable opportunity to talk about the poverty and state of insecurity currently plaguing the nation. Nigerians will hope that the President will address these issues during the Democracy Day celebration in few weeks’ time.
President Buhari will now stem the affairs of the nation for another four years, barring any shocking outcome from Atiku Abubakar’s petition.
